Just saw this news from The Borneo Post about the Sibu Quadruple Murders.
I said earlier madness must have driven the murderer(s) but I didn’t actually expect this twist.
The police are pinning the murders on a mentally-unsound 17-year old.
Case closed? I really hope so.
How The Borneo Post posted it:
Police believe quadruple murder solved *updated!

SIBU: Police believe they have solved Tuesday’s brutal killings of four family members at RTM Road with the arrest of a 17-year-old neighbour.
The boy, who is said to be mentally unsound, was picked up in town late Thursday night.
He is believed to have entered the victims’ home through the first floor ceiling. There is apparently no partition between the ceilings of all the double-storey terraced units.
After police questioned him, the boy is said to have confessed to committing the crime.
A sledge hammer, believed to be the murder weapon, was recovered from the boy’s house.
Police will look for further evidence at the Kemuyang Sanitary Landfill this morning.
On Tuesday, Ling Tong Hock, a 36-year-old timber and shipping businessman, was murdered along with his mother, Leong Nyuk Lan, 76, and his two children, David, 10, and Amy, 7.
Ling’s eight-year-old son, Kelvin, suffered slash wounds to his neck and back, and is undergoing treatment in Kuching at the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) intensive care unit.
The only family member to escape unhurt was Ling’s wife, Li Xiao Lan, a 28-year-old Chinese national, who is the children’s stepmother.
